Illustrations Inspired by the Novel
Author of Alice's Adventures in Wonderland, Charles Lutwidge Dodgson or better known as Lewis Carroll was not only a man of imagination but also a mathematician and logician. He is a constant reminder that a person can excel in both the left as well as the right brain. His book of literary nonsense speaks to those who also daydream about impossible things.Through Wonderland, I have been able to escape into a land of fantasy with creatures of the mind--sometimes more real than reality itself. Reading past the nonesense, Alice's Adventures in Wonderland can teach the mind and open the eyes in a rewarding and enlightened manner.
Over the years, I have made a habit of collecting Alice In Wonderland books that are illustrated by different artists. Though loving the original John Tenniel's drawings, I am inspired by the variety of ways in which other artists imagine this classic tale in their heads. I then escape into my own world of wonderland and map down my interpretations.
